5274485 tn?1385863767 Nylon stocking would not be beneficial and may occasionally cause skin irritation. The idea behind using comfortable/ diabetic shoes is to provide adequate padding to the feet and prevent injury/ trauma. Also the shoes should not be tight to cause pressure at any point or lead to compromise in blood supply. The shoes should fit as comfortably into the normal arch of the foot and heels other than platforms are best avoided. Relative loose/ non-elastic cotton socks would best be suitable.
Avatar n tn with lots of gurgling and sloshing, as well within the last week or so my blood sugar levels seem to be going up (I am not diabetic); could this be nerves or is it part of the progress of the cancer?
Avatar n tn prayer is a powerful thing. My dad was a type 1 diabetic. He did not take care of himself and partying his teenage years away (and into his early twenties) was more important to him than anything else. He paid for it though. He went blind, went on dialysis, his brother gave him a kidney, lost a few toes and then his leg and then died at 48 from a heart attack. He did not have the tools back then to monitor his levels and relied on doctors only to help him manage...but it was too late...
6639481 tn?1383270182 March 2009 I became paralyzed from the chest down. For unknown reasons C7/T1 "broke apart" sending several disc fragments into my spinal cord. Through a milagram, a CT scan, and and MRI it was noted that I required surgery. After undergoing "2" surgeries to remove disc fragments and perform and ACDF at the site, I remained paralyzed for 2 months. I lost "motor skills" in my left leg, and "sensory" in my right leg.

233488 tn?1310696703 Hagan III MD, FACS, FAAO This is a reprint of an editorial in the July 2011 American Journal of Ophthalmology and represents the latest information on floaters. It references a second article from the same issue which I will also post. ARTICLE FOLLOWS: In 1976, Dr Ernst Wynder, founding president of the American Health Foundation and founding editor of the journal Preventive Medicine, stated that “It should be the function of medicine to help people die young…as late in life as possible.
Avatar f tn However, the doctors chose not to treat her because of her conditions and when my mother requested another MRI because my grandmother was getting worse, the doctors refused because they thought it would be futile. Instead they sent us information about hospice care because they had basically given up on my grandmother. They also took CT scans that were useless because they did not see clearly into the extent of the brain damage/swelling.
Avatar f tn My endocronologist gave me a script for Lyrica ...it helped marginally but I was in the 16% that weight gain is a side effect ...I do find that coQ10 is helping almost as much but is also helping with muscle stiffness caused by Lipitor, a statin drug.
Avatar n tn The sock and foot then rub against each other and the inside of the shoe causing blisters to appear. Wear shoes that fit properly and keep feet as dry as possible. Wearing wet shoes, boots and socks will increase your chance of developing blisters. So change socks regularly. And use foot powder to help keep your feet dry. If the blisters still persist then please get it evaluated from a dermatologist/podiatrist. Also try keeping your blood sugar levels under control.
1468681 tn?1286515175 I have to pick it up to walk. I am supposed to get an MRI but I'm putting it off. I am a Diabetic but the Dr. thinks it might be something to do with my back.
Avatar n tn i have gone to 2 podiatrists and the last one said she had never seen anything like it...i am not diabetic, i am 52 and i don't wear my shoes too tight, its a disgusting runny blister that will NOT go away...please tell me what i can do...thanks for your help!
19897272 tn?1486203437 She does not want to give up high heals but has chronic pains for days after and is going to see a Podiatrist for help. Does anyone have any information in relation to type one diabetes and foot problems they would like to pass on? or any advice even.

Avatar n tn He has no other neurological symptoms except for a one week history of bilateral great toe numbness that waxes and wanes. He looked at his shoes and none of them seem to have toe boxes that are too narrow. No family history of diabetes. No family history of similar bilateral great toe numbness. No change in bowel or bladder except he recently has been on levaquin for second episode of prostatitis (first episode 20 years ago). Any ideas about what is going on? thanks so much.
Avatar n tn were not Dr's so we can't give you that information, but if I were in your shoes. I'd take my mom where ever she wanted to go and do what ever it was she wanted to do.
Avatar f tn Suddenly I started experiencing numbness in both feet, especially my toes. I usually wear athletic shoes. MRI of my back was negative, EMG indicated abnormal muscle activity in my lower back. Physical therapist think it is related to my sciatic nerve. I am not in any pain at all. The numbness increases when I run or exercise. I had a pelvic fracture 3 years ago, but after 6 months it was better. The physical therapist is conducting stretching exercises.
Avatar n tn What I can do is give information, and I do suggest you schedule an appointment to see your doctor to start, who can then hopefully give you a refferal to see a rheumatologist, or whichever specialist she/he sees fit. For one, I can guess that from looking at your username, you're 68 years old, if I'm wrong do correct me! With age can come general wear/tear problems for the body, effecting all of the general systems involved in creating a functional human body.
Avatar n tn I have been a Type 1 (juv. diabetic) for 25 years & have done well with it. I was a sales manager for various TV stations across the US. I decided to quit the rat race 3 years ago, move home and start a licensed childcare center. Last February I suffered heart failure and at the same time was diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
Avatar f tn If they are painful then you need to avoid standing for long, wear heel cups in your shoes, wear shoes with soft pads and rub pain relief gel over the heel. Some patients respond to cortisone injections. Other possibilities are allergic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis (less likely) and fungal infection. Please discuss this with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar f tn Secondly, it is quite uncommon to have poor circulation to the extent that it causes a toe ulceration, from a superficial femoral artery blockage in the absence of other blockages below the knee. Conversely, it is not uncommon that a diabetic because of the way shoes fit or for other reasons, develops an ulcer and then the mild to moderate impairment caused by that type femoral artery blockage-prevents the ulcer from healing.
Avatar n tn I suggest you see your doctor! Are you a Diabetic or have any circulation problems? Until you see your MD when resting or in bed keep your legs elevated keep 2 pillows under your feet.
Avatar f tn I started having trouble wearing shoes, it seemed that shoes felt like they were squeezing my feet no matter how loose they were. I cannot wear dress shoes at all. My feet tingle and sharp pains shoot through my toes (especially the pinky toe and the one next to it. My legs feel cold and tingly. I cannot stand to be arround air conditioning without a covering on my legs and feet. I sometimes can barely walk without shooting pains in my feet.
Avatar n tn If I were in your shoes I would get a second opinion from ANOTHER doctor - run don't walk. I saw several PCP's before I found one that I liked, one that listens to me, guides me in the right direction, and, best of all, takes care of me the way I feel a doctor should. I would get another fasting glucose test and don't cheat. Do NOT eat or consume anything but water for a minimum of 8 hours prior to the test. And, I would also get a Hemoglobin A1c (HgBA1c) test.
714128 tn?1249139986 I am not diabetic but am being treated with Metformin for PCOS.. I am afraid it may be effecting my blood glucose if anyone can give me any imput please do. I'm waiting on my doctor to return my call but yet another day went by without hearing from him. My endo has me on Metformin to tread PCOS and he has me on 1000mg twice a day for more then a year now. I am not a diabetic but have noticed that in the last several months I have been feeling worse and worse everyday.
Avatar n tn would alchol cause feet cramps?
Avatar n tn org/wiki/Blister You should consult a doctor for further management and take the following steps to prevent blisters in the future - 'Blisters on the feet can be prevented by wearing comfortable, well-fitting shoes and clean socks. Blisters are more likely to develop on skin that is moist, so moisture-absorbing socks or frequent sock changes will aid those with particularly sweaty feet.
Avatar n tn I still have feeling when I touch the skin but there is a loss of feeling when I walk a lot or swim. At first it was thought to be diabetic neuropathy as I am a borderline type 2 diabetic but my glucose levels are mostly within the normal range, when monitored. Nerve conduction tests were also normal. The latest theory is that it might be tarsal tunnel syndrome and I have had cortisone injections with limited success.
Avatar n tn Getting a hard sell from a friend and fellow diabetic who's on a weight loss program called "Isagenix". Says it's great for dibetics. Just wondering if any one on the forum has any first hand knowledge/experience with this program.
Avatar n tn I would suggest that you go to www.jdrf.org, a website for Type 1 diabetics. I think if you look on it you will find a lot of information. Also if you look on the home page of the website you will find ODST. Click on that and you will find information about your local chapter of JDRF, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and they will be able to put you in contact with other families dealing with many issues or similar issues as yourself and your daughter.
